selection, china, india, and others, but this is not there was the problem in the united states. it is aimed at regulating doctors speech with their patients and criminalizing doctors for have been open conversations that they need to have to provide the quality of care that women deserve. the bill wants to criminalize doctors for providing care and wants to have them violate patient confidentiality and turn in their patients if they learn something in the conversation in the course of their care. this is against all medical ethics and the practice of medicine in the united states. it is aimed at making abortion care less accessible. >> i want to return to an anti- abortion group who unveiled a sting the video. the group said that planned parenthood is practicing in gender-selective abortions. >> even sections of america's population have distorted sex ratios. gendercide exists on almost every continent. if experts are right and gendercide is taking place in our own backyard, what is being done to protect our girls from the most brutal form of discrimination? a violent sex selective abortion
: thomas moran embarked on his first trip to the west in 1871. the united states at the time was still recovering from the ravages of the civil war. americans turned with hope to the western frontier. by painting the pristine grandeur of these remote places, moran enabled 19th-century americans to visualize a magnificent landscape most would never see. his paintings transformed their perceptions of the west. from 1867 to 1879, the united states government sponsored four western expeditions, now known as "the great surveys." of all the ais who accompanied them, ne is more associated with the surveys than thomas moran. the watercolors he brought back from wyoming, the first color images of yellowstone, played a key role in the creation of the national parks system. yellowstone had long been familiar to american indians, mountainmen, traders and travelers. legendary,eemingly unbelievable stories made their way east. the canyon was said to be a "fearful chasm the river a "frightful torrent," the sulfur springs wre "diabolical," the place where "hell bubbled up." while the eruption of old f
disappeared from the united states, and we conquered smallpox in the americas in 1971 and worldwide in 1977, sort of lent us confidence that really, there wasn't much that we couldn't do. as a result, the center began to diversify, to broaden its focus. and so we expanded into chronic disease areas. the national institute for occupational safety and health was incorporated into cdc in the early 1970s. much more recently, we've gotten into areas surrounding injury control and prevention. and of course we realized in the last few years that the infectious disease agenda is not over. certainly it's not in the developing world where it still causes a very heavy burden. apart from what aids is doing as probably the most egregious example that we've seen in our lifetimes, having surpassed malaria as the largest killer of people in africa, is tuberculosis, for which we've had good drugs, haven't used them wisely or enough in years past to reduce some of the problems that we're seeing today. and that's getting more and more serious now with multiply resistant strains of tuberculosis. tuberculosis i

mcveigh, you can find that in the unabomber's writing, this becomes the united states government. and i don't think anybody would have any fault with that one, would they now? no, we can actually see the seven-headed dragon: one head being the atf, the fbi, the justice department, you know, the irs. yeah, that's right up there; that's the antichrist. this is the way it's going- the government, it becomes the antichrist. armageddon, then, is not a plain in israel- you know, koresh literally took it to texas- but it's right here. the united states is armageddon; this is where the mother of all battles is going to take place. babylon, the whore, the harlot of babylon in revelation- if you haven't looked at the book, you kind of have to go back and look at some of these images- but that's corrupt, materialistic, secular humanism, multiculturalism, globalism, the whole mishmash that says everybody belongs. uh - uh. only good christians in that interpretation, but people who believe in the american way belong. you know, you get that feeling in militia groups. the messiah doesn't tend to be a
and the united states over a variety of issues. but more conventionality here, islam is now the second great faith in the united states way behind christianity but, it's surpassed judaism as the numbers here. we've had wonderful experiences with new age religion though note-- remember how the ramtha people and cynthia jones kind bridled at that term new age. they didn't particularly like it so it's a sociological term. but new religious movements, new spiritualities that are emerging, they are new, they are different. if it's different let's hate it. no! let's not. that's the attitude that we want to overcome here just because it happens to be new. skeptics, atheist, humanist, some of the most religious people i have ever met have been the atheist, they have a huge-- you can take the six dimensions and track it right on down. so, these are kinds of people in society that might not reflect the prevailing values, new revelations that may have an intense way prosthetising such as the unification church sometimes called moonies or scientology is always popping up because of various issues that p
usually have in the united states. so we had a lot of time to work on our piece, and we got a lot of work done in a really concentrated period of time. they have green tags in their ears. see that? saner: we've entitled this piece, "how dear to me the hour when daylight dies." and it was premiered in glasgow in scotland, and we toured it in several cities in the united kingdom, including dartington. hixson: every time we get to a new location, thers a lot of schlepping that goes on. we've got to get the trunks out of the van, we've got to get the performers into the space, we've got to get the lights up, we've got to get the sound done. okay. paul says it gets dark around 10:00. our show is at 8:00. it's noon. but now, don't you want to have some food? the food? saner: goat island takes a lot of its content from actual history, from real events, things that real people do. in that respect, i think we are sort of developing community with an audience. you're going so fast that people can't hear you talking, so try to slow down. in this particular piece, my role is to make some connection b
land, the complexity of the medical system in the united states is difficult to comprehend. gerard anderson, health policy specialist, has a simple way to explain it. gerard anderson: i take them to a grocery store, and i show them all the different cereals, and say,e want toave oi in america. it doesn't seem to give us better health re, it doesn't seem to give us lower costs, but it does give us choice, and we value choice above everything. from a practical point of view, the first decision many consumers are confronted with is how to finance their heth care. the choices are simply to pay for it themselves, or to enroll in a private or public health insurance plan. a lot is said about the marketplace of health care. well, for half of people who are getting their health plan through an employer, their employer offers such a narrow range of plans that they-- the consumer-- feel that they are cut off from options they really would like to have. many employers only offer plans that require a patient co-pay or less expensive hmos. cost-sharing makes the assumption that the person can i
faith vary from place to place throughout the world. in the united states, it is - we commonly hear that the bahai faith is a philosophy that has attracted many white middle class intellectuals or liberals. when in fact the bahai community in the united states is extremely diverse, roughly approximates the diversity of the united states in general. the balance between people is such that if you go to the state with the largest bahai population, which is south carolina you will find that the majority of bahai's in that state are neither white nor middle class, nor well educated. that maybe true of bahai's; i am white and it could be said i am middle class. but i couldn't be said to be the typical bahai either in this country or anywhere in the world. the bahai faith is a world wide religion and in fact, according to the encyclopedia britannica year book of 1988, it's the second most widely spread religion in the world after christianity. it is established in more countries and territories of the world and has a significant following in those areas than any religion other than christi

to land. and for those of us who have grown up in the united states, this is very hard for us to realize- it's not something that's necessarily been challenged- but there, it's such a link. and we see people, you know, that form an identity around nationalism. now you see, maybe that's a very powerful way that people create identity and relationship. you see what's going on in the united states in the militia movement that we talked about and some of these patriot movements, in which their focus is the evil united states government taking our land away- this is our land, it's our constitution. so these ideas about land and religion are very, very volatile. i'm certainly not prepared. i mean, that's why i'm glad we have a robert moore, who's obviously well-funded, who started an institute at a prestigious place like the university of chicago to head up the parade, because i think someone needs to head up the parade. how you, you know, disarm the kinds of intensity about land we see in kashmir between the pakistanis and the indians- how do we disarm that? you know, we saw what happened in
people in the united states die of heart-related illnesses. in an average lifetime, the heart beats more than two and a half billion times-- without ever pausing to rest. this fist-sized organ pumps blood to all parts of our body. it's a feat we often take for granted-- unless something interferes with that heartbeat. the most common form of heart disease is coronary heart disease, a narrowing of the coronary arteries that feed the heart. it's the #1 killer of both men and women in the united states. david faxon: atherosclerosis, hardening of the arteries, is a disease of childhood. in a recent study on autopsies of children and young adults in the teenager range, a very high percentage had plaques, had hardening of the arteries evident before the age of ten, and by age 20, the majority had plaques. this thickening, or hardening, narrows the space for blood flow, decreasing and sometimes completely cutting off the supply of oxygen and nutrients to the heart. hodis: and what we know statistically is that if you live long enough, you will get atherosclerosis, or hardening of the arteries,
of canada and the united states. these two highly-advanced and comparatively wealthy countries are home to an extremely urbanized and mobile popation. in the u.s., many urban areas are characterized by diverse cultures, which create a rich ethnic mosaic. oufocus is boston, massachuse, part of a megalopolis located on the northeastern seoa othe uniteds. macaciopulionsoston, massachuse, part of a megalopolis locahave taken root in older seoinner-city neighborhoods. in recent decades, these neighborhoods deteriorated, with a downward spiral in infrastructure, services and oppornities. but w stons bouncing back. with a downward spiral we'll see how relative location to the central business district, or cbd, is important to the development of these neighborhoods-- how so much can ride on their being part of federally-funded enterprise zones and how geographic information systems, or gis, can be used in addressing some difficult urban economic and social issues. boston, massachusetts. once a great port, it's now a world leader in high tech, higher education, bmedicine and finance. but like mo

a pretext for turning them over to the united states, something britain would have a hard time doing for many reasons. but sweden, to be coerced and bullied and pressured into doing it fairly easily. once he's in the grip of the u.s., it is hard to imagine how he will ever secure his freedom or liberty again, given what the u.s. has demonstrated it is willing to do when it comes to people accused of harming national security. >> why is that? why would sweden be more amenable to extradition to the u.s. and not the u.k., which is a very close ally of the u.s.? >> for one thing, just a matter of basic international relations it is much easier for a country like the u.s. to pressure and gore's smaller countries that larger countries. i think there would be a big outcry -- [no audio] >> you were saying? >> sweet it is a small country, much more susceptible to that pressure -- sweden is a small country, much more susceptible to that pressure. the u.n. commission town they violated law on oppressive treatment in the way they allowed cia agents to basically a duck egyptian nationals on their
not been honored. as agreed by israel, sadat in egypt, and me in the united states. in the past, i think president mubarak has been willing to accept this attitude by the israelis and americans that is not to give the palestinians full honor of their rights. i would guess in the next egyptian government, both the president and parliament, that they be much more attuned to palestinian rights. so the peace treaty will be kept intact. the will be more attention might egypt on palestinian rights. >> you met with a leader here in egypt yesterday and discussed the reconciliation and was reported he brought up the was continuing to block reconciliation talks. what are your thoughts on u.s. policy toward the reconciliation? >> i think in the last few years, the u.s. basically has deferred to egypt to negotiate between hamas and fatah. i presume this is a situation that will continue. the carter center is not bound by the restraints. we need with whom we choose, and we choose to me with fatah and hamas, and lebanon, and syria -- everybody involved in the future peace for israel and its neighbors.
' broadest intellectual, and deepest ethical potential. having made that decision they came to the united states, home of liberal arts education, to talk with some of us most closely identified with that kind of education. they spoke with a passion, an urgency, an intellectual conviction that, for me, was a voice i had not heard in decades, a dream long forgotten. for, in truth, we had moved light years from the passions that animated them. but for me, unlike them, in my world, the slate was not clean, and what was written on it was not encouraging. in truth, liberal arts education no longer exists -- at least genuine liberal arts education -- in this country. we have professionalized liberal arts to the point where they no longer provide the breadth of application and the enhanced capacity for civic engagement that is their signature. over the past century the expert has dethroned the educated generalist to become the sole model of intellectual accomplishment. (applause) expertise has for sure had its moments. but the price of its dominance is enormous. subject matters are broken up into

in the land of israel is a partition into two states, and let me explain. originally, in 1947, the united nations called upon a division, or called for a division of the land of israel into two states. the tragedy of our situation in the land here is that we have two people, both of whom have just claims for sovereignty. it's a tragedy because both claims are just. and therefore, it seems to me that the only way out is to allow for both peoples to have the expression of their sovereignty- that is the only way around. and i think it's not only a matter of justice, i believe it's also a matter of israel's political interest to pursue this path. it's been a path that's all too often been rejected by both sides. it was rejected in 1947 by the palestinians. it was rejected after 1967 by many israelis. but i think today there are enough palestinians and enough israelis that realize that this is the only path in which to go, in which each people has its right. >> he said one thing. i'm sorry. >> go ahead. fire away, virginia. >> the dignity of self-defense. do i or any of us realize how people w

of dementia, of cognitive loss in late life in the united states after alzheimer's disease. if alzheimer's disease is responsible for 50-70% of dementia in the u.s. then stroke is probably responsible for 10-25%. and sometimes it occurs after obvious strokes that patient's language and memory system is immediately compromised by the stroke, and they never recover to their prior cognitive capacity. sometimes people may have lots of little strokes that slowly pick away at the cognitive status, and lead to dementia. it's the leading cause of adult disability in the united states. it is the second leading cause of nursing home placement after alzheimer's disease. dr. hamer: alzheimer's disease is very common. we used to think that people just got dotty as they grew old, but we now understand that there's a specific disease with a specific sort of brain chemistry involved in the formation of tangles and other problems in the neurons of the brain. and we now know that there is, at least in part, a genetic basis for alzheimer's disease. dr. mosqueda: alzheimer's disease is actually a disease of

can force these roles to change. wilk: it's not that men in the united states suddenly woke up and realized that they had to start cooking, and it was some sudden leap in consciousness. instead, to me what happened was that women were working more. and that if the household was going to have hot meals regularly, then men were going to start to change their behavior. keach: in every household, the division of labor is constantly changing. new members come and go. in a self-sufficient household like this one in belize, there is but one constant -- are there enough people in the household to provide for daily needs ? the rash household is like millions of others around the world -- pooling the laboofheir extended family to survive. their lives are a model for archaeologists interpreting the families of the past. the excavations in the copan valley revealed many clusters of houses surrounded by agricultural fields. comparing today's belize households to the archaeological remains, william sanders believes that many of the ancient copan residents also lived in extended families. the
